oh my the fumes
i throw myself on everyones knowledge
we have an R reg 1.6 scenic that soon after starting smells of petrol fumes and once warmed up has trouble maintaining idle.
i can only guess that the 2 are related but dont know where to begin.
i have tightened all the doors and made sure all the windows are firmly shut and that the blowers are off so that the smell isnt being drawn into the cab yet the pong persists.
after a few minutes of driving when sitting at idle it struggles to manage 600rpm and has on occassion given up half way round a corner being driven.
